Sinoe Supt., MRU Youth Speaker Might Compete for House Seat in 2017


Sinoe County Superintendent Thomas Romeo Quioh and the County’s Representative to the Mano River Union Youth Parliament, who is also the Speaker, Melvin Sarh, are both eyeing the District #1 Representative Seat of the county in 2017 presidential and legislative elections.
Supt. Quioh told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview on Monday, August 24 in Monrovia that though he has not “finally concluded in contesting the District # 1 Representative slot in 2017,” though it is possible that he might.
Mr. Quioh, who is also a Liberty Party (LP) executive member, boasted that if he considers running for District # 1 Representative seat, he would be a formidable force.
It can be recalled that Quioh emerged second in his Senatorial bid in the 2011 Presidential and Legislative Elections.
From 2010 to 2014 Supt. Quioh served as Assistant Superintendent for Development in Sinoe County and temporarily served as Acting Superintendent before his official appointment as Superintendent.
He boasted of developments during his tenure, including the James Green Sports Stadium, Multi-purpose Youth Center, Children Player, Executive Guest House, electricity, and the Rural Bank.
Sarh, who is also the Speaker of the MRU Youth Parliament, said the youth, which comprised of 65% of county’s population, have resolved to elect a “youthful representative” to seek and promote their welfare.
Sarh indicated that he has renovated 10 schools in the county as well as donated education materials.
He said over the years, he had presented assorted materials to various schools in Sinoe, including textbooks, zinc, and dozens of pencils, among other things.
He said schools that benefited from the gestures include the Sinoe Multilateral High School, United Methodist School, and St. Joseph’s Catholic School, among others. This includes the renovation of several schools.
“2017 will be the time for the young people to speak and we will represent them,” Sarh said. “We as citizens of this county, it is our turn to empower people, who will care and we cannot afford to put the future of our county at stake with the election of people who will enrich their families and themselves.”
